Unlike many here I understand that raising taxes affects economic growth and that a negative growth impacts not only personal income but also govt. revenue and that adds to the deficit that 51% of the income tax paying income earners are funding.
Until the people of this country demand that the Federal Govt. stop spending 3.8 trillion dollars a year, puts some fiscal responsibility back into our economy and forces people to accept personal responsibility for their poor choices this country is headed into a death spiral. By they way the last Reagan budget was 1 trillion dollars. Now inflation didn't increase that four times, Obamabots helped in that process.
I have been told in this forum that I really am not that smart so that being the case if I can be successful and I was, then all those other brilliant people here whining about how much someone else makes or pays in taxes and how evil corporations are shouldn't have any problem doing better than I did.
Who is going to consume more, one family of four with 10 million bucks, or or 10 families of four with 1 million each? The answer is obvious. So, how do we make that happen? How do we make it so that more families have more disposable income? Give government mandated raises? Hasn't worked once. So how about reduce the tax liability of the many, by increasing the tax liability of the few? Wrong? Sure. Immoral. But it works, and the argument can be made that by increasing those taxes, we also increase the overall profit margins of those suffering from that tax increase.
What kind of household did you grow up in? What kind of schools did you go to? What kind of resources did you have available to you while you were growing up?I have been told in this forum that I really am not that smart so that being the case if I can be successful and I was, then all those other brilliant people here whining about how much someone else makes or pays in taxes and how evil corporations are shouldn't have any problem doing better than I did.
I'm curious, because intelligence has very little to do with success for most people, but those things are all major factors in economic success for most. I'm not sure why you think that intelligence would be the only factor involved.
Tucker Case - Tard magnet.
Since it is none of my business what people do with their welfare check, it is none of your business what people do with their corporate welfare check
People are sitting there waiting for someone to deliver a new Escalade with a box of cash in the back and an corporate gate pass on their dash. People are going crazy on gun control, but they won't get out of the recliner over economic policy. If people don't spend, corporate America won't produce. The reason low rate are not booming the economy is because the banking system is still broken. Unless you go after the banks, blaming the producers has the seriousness of Occupying Wall Street until you had to go home for Mom's free Thanksgiving Dinner.
